Business has one goal, to make money – that is the only reason anyone will start a business. There may be differences in terms of how much money and what the money is being used for, ie. social enterprise.
GREED, like the love of comfort, is a kind of fear.
~ Cyril Connolly
Sometimes you encounter people who take all this to a new level, they get greedy, very greedy. That is the point when doing business becomes very unpleasant and the best thing to do is to walk away.
You need to walk away because you’re going to get hurt, greedy people have no social conscience left, all they are interested in is themselves, only themselves. This is extremely destructive, sooner or later most people will know, business suffers and people get hurt.
There is no need to get upset, just notice the trend, cut your loses and walk away. Greedy people can’t help themselves and they will have all kinds of excuses, remember the old godfather quote: “It’s not personal, it’s only business!”
Today, any business is personal, because only personal business is successful.
